While the Calgary Flames have enjoyed most of their success this season on the road, the Nashville Predators have yet to be beaten at home. Both teams look to continue their trends Tuesday as Calgary visits Nashville in the opener of its set of back-to-back road games.

The Flames have lost three straight home contests but have won three in a row on the road after being shut out at Edmonton in their season opener. Nashville has only played three games at home but won them all, outlasting Philadelphia 6-5 on Oct. 10 before posting 4-1 triumphs over Dallas and Colorado. However, the Predators are coming off a 4-2 loss to the New York Rangers on Saturday that dropped them to 1-3-1 on the road. Filip Forsberg recorded a goal and an assist in the setback for his fourth multi-point performance in his last six contests.

ABOUT THE FLAMES (4-4-0): Sean Monahan is off to a fine start this season as he has scored a goal in five of his last six games. The 23-year-old has accounted for three of Calgary's four game-winning tallies, which is one shy of his total from 2016-17. Jaromir Jagr's beginning to the campaign hasn't been as good as the 45-year-old future Hall-of-Famer was placed on injured reserve Sunday with a lower-body injury he suffered the previous night in his fifth game of the season.

ABOUT THE PREDATORS (4-3-1): Forsberg has been an offensive force for Nashville, registering a team-high 11 points over eight games. The 23-year-old Swede also tops the Predators with six goals as he has scored half of their eight power-play and four game-winning tallies. Scott Hartnell is tied for second on the club with three goals, two of which have come with the man advantage.


1. Flames LW Johnny Gaudreau, who leads the team with 11 points, has landed on the scoresheet in six of his last seven games.

2. Nashville D Yannick Weber returned to the lineup Saturday after missing three contests with an upper-body injury and logged 10 minutes, 23 seconds of ice time.

3. Jagr is tied with Gordie Howe for second place on the NHL all-time games played list with 1,924 - including the playoffs.

PREDICTION: Predators 4, Flames 1
